Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
A Better Way is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion.
The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities and talent that our employees invest in their work represents a significant part of not only our culture, but our reputation and achievements as well.
We embrace and encourage our employees’ differences in age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status, and other characteristics that make our employees unique.
We’re here to help!

After two and a half years of extensive research, ICADV has compiled a comprehensive report of recommendations for communities and domestic violence programs based on interviews conducted with survivors of domestic violence.
Going forward, the report will guide statewide programs, trainings, legislative advocacy and violence prevention initiatives. Please read complete report HERE.
